A concert to help end gun violence will be held at the Falls Church City Farmer’s Market, Saturday, September 23, 2017 from 11 a.m. – noon. A coalition of local gun violence prevention groups is supporting the Falls Church Concert as part of a nationwide effort to raise awareness about the gun violence epidemic in America.
This will be one of several concerts held across the U.S., and globally, each connected via social media and online at concertacrossamerica.org. This year the “Concert Across America” will attempt to break an official Guinness World Record by singing the same song during a specific period of time.
“As we lift up our voices against gun violence, let’s remember the more than 32,000 people – many of them being children – are killed by guns every year in the U.S.” Martina Leinz, President, Brady Campaign, Northern Virginia Chapter.

Singers are invited to join in the sing-along, to the song “Nothing More” by the Alternate Routes. Speakers include: Kate Ranta, Domestic and gun violence survivor and co-founder of Women Against the Violence Epidemic, Northern Virginia State Delegates, Falls Church City Police Department and Members of the Falls Church City Council.
